January is one of the best times to buy a property. The new year brings new jobs, new schools, new starts and new opportunities. It’s also one of the busiest times for the real estate market.
The good weather and longer daylight hours means lots more open-house inspections. As many Australians buy and move in January, it’s also very important that you get a building and pest inspection. We’ve put together some of the top reasons why for you.
Make a smart choice
When you’re buying a house there are a lot of things to consider. You’re looking for the right size at the right price in the right neighbourhood. But on top of all these things, you want to make sure that it’s structurally sound and free from nasty pests. No matter how good the photos look in a real estate magazine, you want to have all the facts before you make a decision. A building and pest inspection lifts the veil and uncovers more about the property. Get all the facts before you make a decision so that you can be sure you’re making a smart choice.
Make a good investment
It’s a big financial decision to buy a house. For most of us, it’s not something we do very often. Which is all the more reason you want to get a building and pest inspection, to make sure all that money is going to the right place. It may seem like another expense being added on top, but it could save you from spending hundreds of thousands, or millions on the wrong property. Make sure you’re making a good investment when you buy, get a building and pest inspection first.
Save yourself thousands
The truth is you can’t afford not to get a building and pest inspection. If you buy a house without a proper inspection, you could be taking on thousands of dollars of repairs down the road. From drainage problems to cracks in the outer walls, as well as mould and possible termite infestations. People sell houses for all sorts of reasons, and it’s worth being mindful that some are trying to pass on a damaged property. Don’t get caught out.
